Cisco Collaboration Flex Plan

Cisco® Collaboration Flex Plan gives you access to Cisco’s collaboration products, allowing you to mix and match buying models and deployment models in a single subscription depending on your buying needs. One subscription covers entitlement and technical support for: (a) the cloud services Cisco Webex® Meetings, Cisco Webex Calling, Cisco Webex Calling for SP, and Cisco Webex Teams and (b) the software Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Meeting Server.

Buying models

In your subscription order, you will designate a buying model for a meetings solution (“Meetings”) and/or calling solution (“Calling”), which determines your payment obligations. If you exceed the capacity count limits associated with the buying model in your order, you will be obligated to pay your Partner (or Cisco if purchasing direct from Cisco) for such excess use. There are three buying models available: Enterprise Agreement, Active User, and Named User. You can choose different buying models for Meetings and Calling, but you may not have more than one buying model for either solution at any point. During your subscription, You also have the flexibility to change your buying model from: (a) Named User to Active User or Enterprise Agreement or (b) Active User to Enterprise Agreement. Table 1 shows the Collaboration Flex Plan buying models and the availability of Meetings and Calling within each buying model.

Deployment models

You will choose a software deployment model for each user. For each user with a Meetings entitlement, you can designate one of the following two deployment models: hosted in Cisco’s Webex cloud or deployed on your own premises. For each user with a Calling entitlement, you can designate one of following three deployment models: hosted in Cisco’s Webex cloud, deployed on your own premises, or hosted through a Partner’s hosted services.

Note that when you choose an on-premises or partner-hosted deployment, you will also receive the cloud service Cisco Webex Teams. You have the flexibility to transition from on-premises or partner-hosted to a cloud deployment and vice versa. The deployment model you choose for a user determines their software entitlement, as illustrated in Table 2 below. See the Features and Benefits section of this Data Sheet for more information regarding the deployment options for Cisco Collaboration Flex Plan Meetings-Active User Agreement.

Active User buying model description

When you subscribe to Meetings services via a Cisco Collaboration Flex Plan subscription, your services use will be governed by the Cisco Universal Cloud Agreement and the Cisco Collaboration Flex Plan Offer Description available for download here. In your subscription order, you designate a buying model and your payment obligation is based on the number of Knowledge Workers that access the Cisco software and cloud services and that host at least one Meeting. You will designate a deployment model (cloud or on-premises) for each Active User. If a Knowledge Worker hosts a Cisco Webex Meeting and a Cisco Meeting Server Meeting they will be counted as two Active Users. Your Knowledge Workers receive unique accounts that must not be shared or used by anyone other than the designated Knowledge Worker. The Active User buying model allows you to purchase the full featured Meetings with minimum purchase of the greater of the following: (a) 40 Knowledge Workers; (b) 15% of your Knowledge Workers; or (c) if you are transferring from a Cisco active meetings subscription, the current number of paid active users under your meeting subscription.

Features and benefits

When you choose Cisco Collaboration Flex Plan Meetings - Active User you receive entitlements to a bundle of meeting features. Table 3 describes the included features and the availability of each to users with a cloud versus an on-premises deployment model. Table 4 describes the add-on features that can be purchased on top of your subscription and the availability of each add-on feature based on the designated deployment model.

The Audio Broadcast client starts automatically for attendees and hosts are able to promote individual attendees to full speaking privileges at any time during the meeting. Attendee promotion is provided by presenting PSTN dial in information to promoted attendees. The promoted attendees then become full speaking attendees.
